Battle for a Cause is about autism awareness foremost and proceeds/donations will go to an organization that deals directly with families dealing with autism on a daily basis.

What is autism?
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. (Autism Speaks)

Autism Awareness

Autism is known as a complex developmental disability and as a mother I went to hearing about autism in a conversation to years later advocating for my son who got diagnosed at 2.  Experts believe that autism presents itself during the first three years of a person's life.  The condition is the result of a neurological disorder that has an effect on the brain function.  It is important to share awareness and to take action into finding out more about this mysterious diagnosis.  1 in 88 children are diagnosed now which is a dramatic increase from a decade ago.  To get updated information on Autism as well as support log on to or You can also email me at with any questions or comments.

So yesterday I had a really rough morning. I was getting my Noah ready for school and he didn't want a piece of his clothing on. He cried, screamed, and was pretty much uncontrollable. I did what I could (and what I was taught) to try and calm him. Somehow in the midst of that he was kicking cuz he was so upset and as I was trying to help him i got kicked in the face pretty hard. I had to carry a heavy screaming child into the car on the way to school about half way there he was finally calm again like nothing ever happened. After I dropped him off I was in the car crying and even questioned God why me, why him, why us? Then I realized who am I to question God or his plan. Noah has taught me more patience, more love, more humility than anyone else. I think of how my day is and I'm frustrated but then I think of how much my Noah has improved and I'm so proud of him. He's at school learning then comes home to more therapy and I'm sure he's pushed passed his limit at times. I don't always share those rough moments with people or post about it but that is the reality of autism. April is autism awareness month and it's everyday for me. I'm no where near a perfect person but I do stand on this...we don't always know why we go through certain things but he always shaping and molding us for something great that we can't see yet. His plan  is always bigger than what we can imagine for ourselves. That is all, sorry so long and happy autism awareness month!  Noah`s Mom Nikki
